Job Description

Paid Summer Sales Internship – MarketAxess


To be eligible, you must be a university student due to complete your degree by September 2023.

We are looking for candidates who speak fluent German or French as well as English.

You should have a predicted 2:1 degree or equivalent and have the legal rights to live and work in the country you are applying.

Why MarketAxess?

Want to have an immediate impact while transforming an industry?

A company who has committed to the Women’s Empowerment Principles as part of our commitment to promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment in the workplace, marketplace and community?

Do you want to be part of a small organisation allowing you to have regular interactions with senior management? Somewhere where you are not just a number?

Well, we’re ready for you.

At MarketAxess, we are driving a fundamental shift to trade bonds differently, creating a new marketplace that is easier to access, more transparent, and available to participants across the globe. Working at a FinTech company means being in the moment, exploring new ideas, and meeting clients’ ever-changing needs. It’s exciting to bring tangible innovation to the credit industry as part of a new era in finance.

Formed in 2000, MarketAxess strives to maintain an entrepreneurial culture, where we encourage new ideas and pride ourselves on our ability to execute. Our flat organization offers high visibility across the company. At the crossroad of fixed income trading and technology development, MarketAxess offers a unique place to work.

The programme

There is no better way to experience what a career at MarketAxess has to offer than through our eleven-week internship programme. As a 2022 Summer intern with MarketAxess, you will grow your skills through on-the-job training and professional development classroom training. You will participate in projects working on problems, providing community service and enjoying social events. You will be well supported, receiving regular feedback from your manager to aid your professional development and will have a dedicated buddy. Our summer internship programme offers the opportunity to build new skills, grow your professional network and provides  an in-depth insight into career possibilities at MarketAxess.

This is a full-time paid internship to begin on Monday 6th June and complete on Friday 5th August.

What type of work can you expect to do?

For the first part of your internship you will work with in our Client Services team. This will provide you with a base understanding of our 1st line client support function and the operations of the trading platform. You will gain insight into the front office through to back office trading workflows and perform tasks such as client troubleshooting, onboarding, and reporting, whilst giving you exposure to all other teams and how they fit with the overall operations of the firm. 

Later in the internship, the Sales Intern will work alongside Senior Relationship Managers to gain an understanding of the Fixed Income market structure (both buy and sell side) and also MarketAxess as a business. You will be exposed and guided through all levels of the firm to ensure that your sales skills can be applied to selling MarketAxess’s suite of products, and the business as a whole, in the most elevated manner. You will be trained on how to manage the full life cycle of new clients – from prospecting, to onboarding, to training, to trade execution. You will be encouraged to be a vocal contributor to product development, client prospecting and strategy. A hunger to ensure that existing business is maintained, by working closely internally with Developers and Product Managers, and a keen-eye for growth opportunities, by seeking out new clients and products, will be a key attributes for the candidate.
